PMI RMP Certification – Eligibility Requirements


Just like any certification offered by the Project Management Institute (PMI) the Risk Management Professional (RMP) Certification too has a set of Eligibility Requirements that a candidate has to meet in order to qualify to take-up this exam.

The Qualifications or Eligibility Requirements can be split into 3 categories:
1. Educational Background
2. Project Risk Management Experience &
3. Formal Risk Management Education

Based on point no.1 “Educational Background” the requirements that you must fulfill under points 2 & 3 will vary. Based on educational background, PMI Classifies people into two broad categories. The eligibility requirements for those 2 categories are as follows:

Category 1: Individuals with a Bachelor’s Degree or Global Equivalent

Project Risk Management Experience Required – At least 3000 hours in the past 5 consecutive years
Formal Risk Management Education Required – 30 Contact Hours

Category 2: Individuals with a High-School Diploma or Associates Degree or Global Equivalent

Project Risk Management Experience Required – At least 4500 hours in the past 5 consecutive years
Formal Risk Management Education Required – 40 Contact Hours

You might be wondering that the eligibility requirements are very similar to the requirements for the Project Management Professional (PMP) Certification. But, there are a few minor differences between the two. They are:

1. The PMP does not consider overlapping experience whereas the RMP does. For ex: If you had spent risk management effort in two projects simultaneously, you can utilize both the hours for the Project Risk Management Experience required criteria
2. If you are attending any general Project Management related training, then, only those hours you spent learning about the area of “Risk Management” will be considered towards the Contact Hours criteria

As with the PMP Certification Contact Hours (or PDUs) requirements, the Contact Hours can be obtained only from Registered Education Providers or REP’s that are registered with the PMI.
